    I'm getting a little frustrated cause of this.

    I have 3 pages that I wanted to rank for rocking chair cushion, actually I didnt want that but somehow I got my attention cause of this odd stuff.

    Page1: Innerpage at thin affiliate site
    Links build? Web2.0 pyramid / social bookmarks / pressrelease / directory's / AMR articles
    Type of site? Thin affiliate site auto build with FSB ( > 3500 indexed pages)
    Type of page? Product page
    Uniqueness? Added some unique content + it uses a template to spin amazon descriptions and adds some standard spun txt like, we are proud to offer [product] etc.
    Onpage optimisation? Standard, not overdone really

    Page2: Innerpage at Wordpress blog
    Links build? 50 articles high PR society, 5 links at PR3+ wikispaces, tumblr PR4 page, 5 comments at PR6+ facebook pages / 5 comments on PR5+ blogs with less then 50 outbound links
    Type of site? Review site, 8 pages big (6 pages rank at page 1 for several keywords)
    Type of page? Productpage with 8 affiliate links to Amazon (well not really affiliate links as it uses some sort of iframe)
    Uniqueness? 100% unique, self written, no spun/scrape/copy whatsoever.
    Onpage optimisation? Standard, not overdone really

    Page3: free tumblr blog
    Links build: scrapebox comments + AMR articles (pyramid style)
    Type of site? web2.0 property
    Type of page? Free blog with the worst spun content you can imagine, 1 outbound link to my site.
    Uniqueness? Quiet sure it's 100% unique cause I never seen anyone publish such bad quality (makes me doubt about myself lol)
    Onpage optimisation? It doesnt even have a title cause the software submitter has it's flaws, also no avatar or any kind of custimisation. The keyword I try to rank for is only mentioned ONCE in the anchor txt to my website.

    RESULTS after several weeks:

    Page1: ranking nowhere
    Page2: ranking page 7
    Page3: ranking #5 page 1

    Please somebody shoot me or explain me what is going on.

    You have to fight with blackhatters and seo'ers to win your place in this game ;)

    Guess who won the fight? The most crappy uberspunned, totally unreadable free tumblr blog with no reblogs and spammed with > 1000 scrapebox comments :confused:

    I want to add that the 2 site pages that rank as good as nowhere are both affiliated with Amazon. The 6 other pages at my Wordpress blog rank all at page 1 and also have affiliate links, but not to Amazon but to clickbank and other IM products.
